Such a wonderful resort..only issue is the pool. They need one on site. But for us the Is property suits us just fine. So relaxing... The staff is very friendly and helpful. The shopping center within walking distance is so handy. The beach is beautiful. Please note there are no elevators. We had a great vacation and we will be... More

Mahalo for your recent stay and your positive review, and especially for sharing with us that you please to return!

The good: Nice room, large, king bed, beautiful garden view, not just a "garden view" but a real, walk-able garden with interesting plants. Plantation style decor, freshly painted. Typical amenities. The bad: Not a decent single night's sleep due to loud parties every night. Much of the noise comes from the nearby Sheraton (I feel so bad for the people... More

We were staying at Kiahunna Plantation with a group of friends. Three couples staying in three different units. Two couples had second floor units but we had a first floor unit. Be careful when you book as these units have no A/C. Don't be fooled by the term Hawaiian A/C. It means winds and ceiling fans. We were uncomfortable and... More

We apologize that you did not enjoy your recent stay. It is true and well publicized that we do not feature air conditioning. Most folks find the temperature comfortable, but obviously it is not suited for everyone. And yes, our pool facility is not right on property, however, the recent improvements we have seen in transforming it into the Poipu... More

We were initially concnerned that this large property would feel urban or congested. The reality was entirely different. The lodging units are scattered across beautifully landscaped grounds with lots of open space. Each multi-unit building is designed for privacy with lots of elbow room and a lovely lanai. Though we were back from the beach, our third floor setting gave... More

Beautiful grounds. Condo was well-kept and quiet; felt very private. Several dining options close by, some within walking distance. Loved getting chairs and sitting on the expansive lawn overlooking the ocean. Water was rough during our stay. Walking distance to Poipu Beach. Would definitely stay here again.

We liked this place. Beach in our back yard. BUT a couple of things: A hedge blocked access, so we had to walk around about 500 feet to actually get to the beach. People kept walking in front of our place, searching for beach access, even though signs clearly said "No Beach Access" - so we are sitting on our... More

Thank you very much for your recent stay. Kiahuna features the only true beach front condos on Kauai. As to the foot traffic, yes, we are aware of this issue, and are trying to figure out what type of signage to use in order to discourage folks from walking along that area of the lawn. They do not seem to... More

My wife booked a one week stay here for the second week of our honeymoon. I felt mislead. The pictures depicted a much nicer, cleaner and updated condos than what we stayed in. The gardens and attached restaurant were great and that was about it. The parking was difficult at times. I got the impression that beach goers were trespassing... More

We've made this our home 6 years running for our annual extended family vacation. It is extremely family friendly. We always get a unit right on the front lawn (several units in the teens) so our kids can run around. The beach is great. Although the pool/athletic club is a medium walk or short drive away....it has REALLY shaped up.... More

We booked 2 ocean front condos, one for my husband and me, and one for my parents, for April 15-22, 2015. We always stay at the Outrigger managed condos at Kiahuna Plantation but they didn’t have availability for our dates so we decided to try the Castle managed condos at Kiahuna Plantation since they did have availability.
